What OS are you using? This should work on your version of Windows. Open the Task Manager, highlight explorer.exe, click on end process, open File, top lelt corner, click on New Task (Run..), type explorer, click on OK. That should reset your Tray Notification Area.

    The procedure will reset the Tray Notification Area. When did this occur? Have you tried a system restore? What happened prior to this?

SOURCE: My laptop won't connect to wireless internet...

It seems the two oval lights on the front of the Acer TravelMate 3003LCi are not only lights to indicate WiFi traffic, but also buttons to turn the WiFi radio on and off for security reasons. If you press and hold the left side button for 3-5 seconds it should turn back on the WiFi radio. Windows XP (and maybe other OS’s) have a power saving function that turns the radio off when not in use to save the battery, so you have to use the buttons to turn the radio back on. Seems like a pain in the @$$ to me, but it’s a clients laptop not mine so he will have to live with that.

I hope this helps someone so they do not have to go through the frustration of trying to figure out why the radio has been turned off.

SOURCE: My acer aspire one mini notebook doesnt connect to internet

This will happen if you let the battery go completely dead. Some files become corrupted.
Solution:- Right click on Settings (preferences some models). Select 'Network' then double click on 'gFTP'. Scroll down to '.gconf' and double click. select and double click on 'system'. Right click on 'Networking'. Scroll down to 'Delete'. Left click on 'Delete'. Confirm 'YES'. Turn off the computer, then restart. What you have done now forces the computer to re-create the networking file. Your networking icon should re-appear on the taskbar. Note this is only for LINUX systems. - Good Luck!

SOURCE: cant get into the network center on my acer aspire 1 ,

If this is an aspire One with linpus lite linux,

The network center disappearing is an issue with the linux update server that seems to corrupt the OS.

The solution unfortunately is to reload the OS from the recovery disk.

The aspire ONE does not come with an ODD so you will need to use the disk on a unit that has an ODD to make the recovery USB flash drive.

You will need a USB flash drive that has at least 2GB of storage, a computer with an ODD, and the linpus recovery disk that came ywith your unit.
1. Boot to the linpus disk, one of the options should be to make a recovery USB drive, make sure that no important data is on this USB drive as it WILL be formatted and erased.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and then insert the recovery flash drive in to the USB slot of the Aspire ONE.
3. Re-start the Aspire ONE and press F2 to go in to setup.
4. Change the boot order to boot from "USB HDD" and press F10 to save and exit.
5. Unit will reboot and recovery will start.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Right click on your "internet" icon in the bottom right side of the screen, and click diagnose problems. This should work, if not, restart your computer. If this is a network you have connected to before this should fix you right up.

Lost signal on acer aspire 6530 lap top, dont know if my daughter has pressed a wrong button or switch ?


There is a little satellite icon next to the always blue (when turned on) skip to next (song) and stop (square) touch buttons. Put your finger on the satellite icon for a few seconds, then move off, a green message should come up on the bottom of your screen saying "Wireless LAN enabled", if it says "Wireless LAN disabled" then there is another problem with your connection.
When the wireless is enabled check that you're connected to the wireless network. Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center (in Vista) you should be able to see:
"Access Local and Internet"

If it's not connected to the internet try resetting your wireless router, if that doesn't work, check you have the correct network password. Right click the two little PC screens (icon) in the bottom left, in the new window right-click your network and go to properties. In the new window, "Security" tab check the settings and type in the correct network security key (password) again. Hopefully you will have a record fo the network security key or your problem will have already been fixed before you get to this point. :)

Acer aspire lost internet connection how do i connect


Look on the Function keys on the keyboard (the F1 through F12 keys) Do you see a wireless icon on one of the keys? If you do, then look for a Function (Fn) key on the keyboard. Press and hold Fn, while holding Fn, press the funtion key with the wireless icon (example: the wireless icon is on the F2 key; press and hold the Fn key, while holding the Fn key, press F2, release both keys).
